Despite all the modern possibilities of today's hightech medicine, heart attacks remain by far the number one cause of death in Western Europe. More and more frequently, even young people are affected. Many people are not even aware that they have a sick (i.e. pathologically altered) heart. The symptoms of an oncoming heart attack can be multifaceted: sudden pain in your chest, possibly spreading into your left arm, stomach, or back; profuse perspiration, nausea, shortness of breath, and anxieties.

Why should you have your heart examined even though you have no complaints? Because many people suffer an unexpected heart attack which can carry with it serious consequences. Alongside possible genetic predisposition, by and large it is our lifestyle which turns us into candidates for a heart attack.

Factors such as

  • nicotine
  • lack of exercise
  • poor eating habits and overeating
  • lack of resistance to stress

increase your risk of a heart attack.
